The Hungarian or Grey Partridge has been a staple for fly tiers for centuries. With a strong palate of greys and browns to red browns, this bird has served the needs for the wet fly aficionado. Wing feathers, primaries and secondary’s can be use for March Brown wet flies while the grey breast feathers make great soft hackle flies that move lifelike in the water. Many aquatic insects in various stages have legs showing some speckling. The speckled feathers from this bird make great legs on a variety of patterns from stonefly nymphs, mayfly nymphs and caddis pupae. The fly tier should not be without a couple of good skins at their disposal.
